Description Format References See Also Examples

Description

This database produces a high-resolution map of New Zealand. The database includes Pacific and sub-antartic island dependencies also.

Format

The data file is merely an assignment to a character string which specifies the name of an environment variable which contains the base location of the binary files used by the map drawing functions. This environment variable (R_MAPDATA_DATA_DIR for the datasets in the mapdata package) is set at package load time.
